Organizations are increasingly faced with transformational change and a change saturated workforce. Yet, the methodologies and tools most companies are relying on to introduce transformative change into their organizations were developed in the mid-1990s…25 years ago. These methodologies are mis-matched with the volume of disruption and information overload that surround today’s employees. Leadership development and HR leaders play a critical role in equipping business leaders with the capabilities and tools to enable organizations to move quickly, seize opportunities, and be resilient and ready for change.
This session will cover a practitioner’s view of key evolutions in the field of organizational change that learning and development departments will want to incorporate into their approach to building and modernizing change capability within their organization. The session will examine the importance of starting with reinforcement, the power of choice, and why storytelling is essential in transformation. We will also examine how Citrix is benefitting from an employee-driven workplace mindfulness program that is increasing capacity for change and resilience within its workforce. Learning and development departments play a critical role in unlocking the potential of the human mind to welcome change rather than resist it. It’s time we rise to the call to inspire and prepare our workforce to move as fast as the world is changing.
